THIS IS OBVIOUSLY THE MOST IMPORTANT DRAFT FOR COACH MARINELLI AND WITH HIS PEDIGREE YOU KNOW HE WILL WANT THE BEST CHARACTER PLAYERS TO MAKE THE MOST INFLUENCE ON HOW HIS TEAM GETS READY TO PLAY AND PERFORM. I HOPE HE GETS HIS CHOICE OF PICKS BECAUSE HIS PLAN IS WORTHWHILE.

They have good soild players that can compete with any team in the NFL, but they have'nt. Is it the coach or do they pay the players to lose by keeping the ones that are not wearth it. Like Harrington. Three seasons and he got worse every one who does that fall on the coach or GM I don't know but they need to do somthing to turn this team around. I hope the new coach can do it cause I'm tired of defending the Lions. I have been a fan all my life and always will. I just wish for the good old days of Billy Sims and Barry Sanders
